This past year has not been easy, my periods are all over the place, unsettled, painful and heavy. Back in July/August I bled for 3 weeks after only having 4days since my previous period which had lasted 10 days. The Consultant put me onto Yasmin to stop the bleeding. Rather than stop I bled heavier for a further 6weeks, began losing clots which became the size of ping pong balls and the pain was just immeasurable. After booking an emergency appt he took me off Yasmin and advised I had the coil fitted. I was also sent for an ultrasound which was perfectly fine. I have advanced endo which I kinda knew was causing my issues.
It has been just over four weeks since stopping Yasmin, I haven't had a bleed which I'm obviously grateful for. I had the coil fitted Friday just gone (the most horrific experience of my life) I have unsettled pain which I expect. According to the 28day guidlines us women have I should have come on two days ago but my history is that I have 42+ day cycles so I wouldn't expect to be on now anyway.
I'm incredibly grateful that I haven't started spotting, and dearly hope my body accepts the coil so I can enjoy the next five years of my life. I just wondered just how quickly the coil begins to work in all aspects. Any experiences people had would be invaluable. Although I am open minded I would like to have a slight insight.
